|“The Mosiac Ladies”|
I can not even begin to express my thanks and gratitude to my family as I have planned this fundraiser, whilst working on my degree. Their support has been more than I could have ever asked for. From the very beginning my mom has been hands on assisting where she could. Thanks to my dad for taking some wonderful and memorable photos of the event.Thanks to my sister and brother in law who out bid many people and took home 8 silent auction items; the record for the evening! Without them this night would not have been possible. Last but not least a tremendous thanks to my boss at work for giving me the time off so I could return to Nkoaranga, and spend 7 more weeks with the children and mamas; I can’t wait!

I wish that I had the words to express how thankful I am for everyone that attended the evening and made it possible, but there are no words to express what I feel and how grateful I am for all of you. I think that Mother Teresa says it best, “We ourselves know that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop. We can do no great things, only small things with great love.” That’s what we are all about at The Small Things as we work to enhance the children and mama’s lives at Nkoaranga, one small thing at a time.
